If you saw clips from last Sunday’s Golden Globes (I know, it’s hard for any sane person actually watch the entire show) then you likely saw snippets online that made you drop your jaw in wonderment that there were people on the planet that narcissistic.
One of them, Michelle Williams, got up in front of an appreciative audience and basically said if you want to have a good career, have an abortion. Here’s her words.
“I’m grateful for the acknowledgment of the choices I’m made, and I’m also grateful to have lived at a moment in our society where choice exists, because, as women and as girls, things can happen to our bodies that are not our choice. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without employing a woman’s right to choose…So, women, 18 to 118, when it is time to vote, please do so in your own self-interest. It’s what men have been doing for years. Don’t forget, we are the largest voting body in this country. Let’s make it look more like us.”
Other celebs like Jamie Lee Curtis quickly agreed with Michelle’s sentiments.

Where to start? “Do this?” Thus Hollywood success, according to Williams, is reliant upon killing an infant. As such, Herod the Great should have been boffo box office.
“Self interest?” So, forget about the nation and anything that affects us a people. Taking care of number one is your priority. America? Who’s that? And oh yeah, voting in your interest means by definition supporting abortion. Yeah, sure, right.
“More like us?” Let’s have gender quota systems in voting and elective office. Because quota systems worked so well in the South during Jim Crow.
But aside from my sarcastic commentary a mom and actual celebrity, Top Model Leah Darrow, had a few choice words for Williams. In an Instagram video posted on Tuesday she put it much better than I have.
“I’m here getting ready to deliver my fifth baby and I want to let all you women know, all you young ladies who haven’t had babies or are maybe listening to what the culture says about birth, and women, and babies, and choice. Babies don’t keep us from our dreams. I’m getting ready to deliver a baby that will not keep me from my professional growth, but will make me better because of it. And I’m so honored and excited, and I can’t wait to have this baby.”
Point, set, game, goes to Darrow. Williams can return to her dressing room.
